Looking for ideas on a good juice for comparing atomisers in technical vape reviews by fixing the juice as a variable - useful for cross reviewer comparisons, and panel reviews. This one has been used by AussieGeekVaper to do annual RTA showdowns with a panel of reviewers (note: this is an experimental idea in all senses, and part of the fun will be for people to try the outcome and see if it does produce more contrasting outcomes in different atties than testing on favourite juices)
The intention is to create a technical testing juice, not an everyday vape, that will draw out where a device is muting or peaking on certain flavour profiles, so the focus is on commonly used flavour classes like fruits, bakery and dairy, all in the one vape. DX is used because bakeries and creams often contain potentially undesirable amounts of diacetyl, and if you use this for testing, you are probably going to vape a lot of it. In my experience the DX versions are weird until steeped for at least a month, but then become good. Even better at 2 months, so I recommend keeping a stash of this steeped.
Definitely not wedded to using DX as I realise most people seem to take a dim view of DX (even though with enough steep time they are pretty decent) and dont seem to care about the diacetyl levels - but prefer to minimise them. Not wedded to anything about this really, just opening up for discussion and giving an already used example. But it would be nice to get some kind of agreement so that a number of vape reviewers could in theory mix this up and use it as one of the juices they use as a reference point. The aim is not great flavour, but potential for contrasting outcomes when used in devices that perform differently!
Any and all thoughts appreciated.
